The artists this afternoon will be accompanied at the p'ano by Charles Groves , whose work in connection with the training of the Chorus for Theatre Orchestra programmes is well known.

' The Christmas Cuckoo '
A play made by Elisabeth Kyle from the story by Frances Browne
Once upon a time two poor cobblers, while cutting their Yule log, found a cuckoo sleeping in a hollow tree root. In return for their hospitality it promised to bring them gifts when it came back in the spring-a leaf from the Golden Tree, worth a great price, and a leaf from the Merry Tree, which keeps folk gay all the year round. With such gifts you would have thought all would be well for the brothers, but it wasn't quite so simple. The play will tell you what luck the leaves brought them.
Conductor, P. S. G. O'Donnell

The story of Cinderella retold in words and music by Henry Reed
Produced by David Porter
In the cast:
The Three Chimes, the BBC Revue Chorus, Augmented BBC Variety
Orchestra, leader, Frank CanteU , conductor, Charles Shadwell
Since the war listeners have heard a number of radio plays adapted by Henry Reed from fairy tales and produced by David Porter. Invariably the princess has been played by that most charming of radio artists, Wynne Ajello. So delightful have these plays been that listeners will look forward all the more eagerly to hearing Reed's adaptation of the world's favourite story. The radio Snow White's Cinderella should be a joy to listen to.
And what a cast supports her -the Baron, that grand radio comedian, Dick Francis (how good he was a, few years ago as Mr-Bluebeard, a much-married millionaire, in a Gordon McConnel Grand Christmas Attraction Mr. and Mrs. Bluebeard !) ; the King, C. Denier Warren, of Kentucky Minstrels and White Coons fame ; Buttons, George Moon , who played for Bobby Howes for a month in Hide and Seek ; the Chamberlain, Maurice Denham , who is so versatile that he played Lord Peter Wimsey at the Comedy ; and last but not least, Prince Charming, Dudley Rolph , another radio favourite, who starred in cabaret with Frances Day when she first came over from America.
